Paulo De Tarso has stepped down from Margot, a Covent Garden restaurant that he co-founded in 2016.
The restaurateur was senior maitre D’ at Bar Boulud for six years before he opened the Italian dinery with Nicolas Jaouën, the former manager at La Petite Maison in London.
Since its opening, Margot has been shortlisted for the Catey Best Newcomer award in 2019, and won the AA Food Service award in the same year.
De Tarso said: “After four successful and exciting years building Margot into one of London’s highly regarded restaurants, I am moving on.
“I wish all the team at Margot well and look forward to telling you more about the next chapter in my story in this amazing industry soon.”
